It feels good…

{easter cutie}

Ahhh…it feels good to be back in the blog world. I’ve received some emails and spoken to a few folks about getting back into the swing of things — peeps saying they MISS MY BLOG!!! Oh, how that warms my heart. :) Sometimes I forget that eyeballs are looking at my work and reading my words from other computers…i got some nice, very flattering reminders to BLOG ALREADY!

So, here I am. Life has changed leaps and bounds in the last couple weeks. Aside from the death of my grams, we found out that my family is moving to Dallas. Wooo wee…or should I say…Yeeee Hawwww! :) No, I’ve never lived there, never been there, and don’t know ANYONE who lives there. Well, that’s not true…my cousin has a friend there that I’ve met before, so at least that’s a start. I’m terribly sad to leave friends and family. BUT excited for my husband — he has a wonderful opportunity to be the best he can be out there in the Lone Star State. Moving is always bittersweet…

What does this all mean for Maggie McDonald Photography? I don’t exactly know! I DO plan on spending lots of time with my kiddos and slowly, possibly building a business out in the Dallas area. I LOVE what I do and feel like I’d be searching for something without it! I ALSO plan on coming back to the Phoenix area several times a year to photograph kids, adults, families…whatever YOU want! I have a long list of interested clients, so I’ll be sending an email out to everyone as soon as I know where I’ll be when. One thing that’s great about staying in the same place, as a photographer, is getting to grow with clients — getting to watch as the kiddos get bigger. I LONG for that and hope that I can continue photographing you all (or new clients?!) when I return for visits. If you’d like to be on the email list for sessions (especially holiday mini sessions…YES, I’ll be doing those!!!) please shoot me an email at

Anyway, since I got back from Cali, I have been talking with the relocation company, movers, relatives, cleaning, organizing, deciding what to give away and keep, you name it. Hence the reason for the lack of blog posts! While I can’t promise a daily post, I WILL be posting more regularly!

Have an awesome day. And thanks for stopping by…still…even though I haven’t been blogging! I have lots of sessions coming up, so prepare yourself!!! ;) ~m

    Glad to see you back. But also glad you took the much needed break to be with family :) . My sister lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area there and just told me today she was taking her 5 kids to get pics done and wished I was there. I wish you were there so I could tell her to call you! Good Luck in Dallas! Your work is amazing and I am sure you will do awesome!

    …”photographing ‘you all’”? Isn’t it y’all?

    Too bad y’all can’t see Jack’s shorts and shark boots in his picture — y’all wouldn’t think he was going to a board meeting. Hooray for the mom who thinks this is the perfect Easter outfit! Cracks me up.

    BooHoo (she pouts and stomps her feet) we had BIG plans! I’m so sad you’re moving sweetie – and not just cause I loved working with you, but because I was sincerely looking forward to building a friendship with such a wonderful person. Do you know when you’ll be leaving? Have any good stuff to give away?? :) :) Hee hee…give me a call – we still need to watch that video!
